[img align=right]http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y101/Linkachu166/ChristmasCharm.png[/img]Just in time for the holidays, I'd like to host the first ever "Secret Santa" exchange for the Pokecharms community - and, naturally, our presents will be Pokémon =)
Basically, you're going to make a present (aka. breed a special Pokémon) for an anonymous Pokecharms member who's also taking part in the exchange. By "special", I mean a Pokémon that's had a bit of thought put into it - may it be for its egg moves, nature or ability, TM attacks, move tutor moves, or rarity (something that's not simply a plain ol' Bidoof or Magikarp, y'know?). How much time you'd like to spend on your gift is up to you, as is whether or not you attach a hold item to it. Pokémon such as radar chained shinies, favourable natured Ditto, or event legendaries are fair game, too - just nothing hacked or cloned please.
All you need to participate is own a copy of Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum and have ready access to the WiFi Connection. You'll also need a bit of spare time and to be available over the Christmas holidays: once to give me your present, and again later to receive your own. The exchanges will be done through me, so you won't know who your gift is going to or coming from until after the fact.
Now, the deadlines - which are flexible within reason. If possible, I'd like to have all of the Pokémon to me no later than December 27th (that's exactly two weeks from today). I'll then send a mass PM out to everyone involved about further trade times/dates, so keep watch of your PM inbox. Ideally I'm aiming to have everyone's presents to them by January 3rd.
If you're interested, drop me your name and D/P/Pt friend ID via the news comments or in a private message. By chance we end up with uneven numbers, I'll balance things out with gifts of my own. Any questions about anything? Feel free to ask and I'll do my best to answer. Thanks in advance to anyone who takes part! ^^
